Our prayer is to see people from every tribe and tongue worship the one true God in spirit and truth.
SGC currently supports 17 families, serving in 10 different countries. Most of our missionaries serve overseas in cross-cultural settings; some serve in local ministries that are consistent with our Missions Strategy.
We feel it is very important to maintain a strong personal connection between our congregational partners at home and those workers on the field. Therefore we encourage prayer, getting to know our missionaries, and giving to the GO Fund.
We are a church that is committed to raising up, equipping, and sending our own into the mission field. We believe creating a unified (pooled), consistent funding mechanism is the best way to maintain uniformity of mission, purpose, and accountability in our Global Outreach. Our expectation is that this model creates a unified approach to missions for our church body as a whole. We encourage our members to give towards missions, and not only a person.
- Southern Gables Church has three categories of missionaries:
- SGC Staff Missionaries
- SGC Missionaries
- Short-Term Missionaries
In addition to our long-term missionary service, we encourage our partners to participate in cross-cultural Short-term Missions ranging from one week to as much as two years. We feel this is an important part of every person’s spiritual growth and necessary to truly understand God’s love for every created being.
